July 19, 2020
July 19 is National Ice Cream Day and businesses across the nation are celebrating with specials, discounts, free scoops and contests.
Former President Ronald Reagan signed a proclamation, in 1984, that declared July to be National Ice Cream Month. The third Sunday of the month became officially known as National Ice Cream Day. Reagan’s proclamation noted that the ice cream industry generated $3.5 billion in annual sales.
Here are some deals and freebies for National Ice Cream Day (according to Valerie Bonk, wtop):
“The ice cream shop is offering a free delivery fee on orders $15 and up through DoorDash using the promo code “BASKINSCOOP.”
“The restaurant chain is combining National Ice Cream Day with their 85th anniversary, offering 85-cent single scoop cones on July 18 and 19 to members of their rewards club.”
“Those who download the Sonic app can get a 1/2 price Blast milkshake.”
“The grocery is offering 35% off ice cream & frozen treats for Prime Members through July 28.”
“Insomnia is releasing the ice cream Monster’wich on July 19. To celebrate the new addition, they are offering buy one, get one free for sandwiches on National Ice Cream Day.”
“Dairy Queen is offering $1 off of any size dipped cone (excluding kiddie sized). They are also introducing a vegan Dilly Bar made with coconut cream and a dairy-free chocolate shell, which will also be $1 off and will be available on Sunday…..”
I would encourage everyone to enjoy some ice cream today. There are many different flavors, and many different versions of the frozen dessert. Everyone seems to have a favorite flavor. Remember that you can even enjoy a dairy free ice cream…it is delicious! I hope you get to enjoy your favorite flavor of ice cream today!
